Before the iPhone, mobile phones were just that: phones. Afterward, they were pocket portals to the internet, and an entire generation of American children can't remember a time when the digital world wasn't portable. The phenomenon has attracted the attention and concern of parents, psychologists and neuroscientists, which will be brought to the big screen on Thursday, Aug. 15, when Nutrition Works will play Screenagers at The Flicks. This documentary asks—and seeks to answer—questions about how this new e-frontier is affecting young people's development, and gives parents tools for ensuring their children's real lives are at least as good as their digital lives, by discussing the relevant issues with experts and telling the stories of children whose lives have been impacted by easy, and often obsessive, access to the World Wide Web.

7 p.m. $10. The Flicks, 646 W. Fulton St., Boise, theflicksboise.com.
